Über das Programm

This project is all about supporting and empowering women. 

We cooperate with a house full of girls and women who suffered from any kind of abuse, ran away from forced marriages or rape or who were not allowed to go to school. There you can help them to educate different subjects like maths or English and just be there for them.

We are currently sewing reusable sanitary pads for girls and women and bring them to schools, explain the girls what a period is like, what it means and how to use the pads for a better hygiene. We also explain them how not to get pregnant and how to protect themselves against HIV and other diseases. Theses topics are still treated very silent here, nobody talks about it so we want to raise more attention and tell the girls having a period and bleeding is n o r m a l and nothing to be ashamed of. We also bring the pads to Maasai villages to help the girls and women there and explain them the same topics, because they mostly are too poor to buy sanitary pads or tampons and therefore they don’t have anything to use while bleeding. Those who are already HIV positive can talk freely and get medicine and can also talk about side effects of their medicine if they have that. We also help young mothers (age of 12 years for example) to be still able to go to school and start a good live.

Interested? Great! Don’t hesitate to contact us.

A typical day could look like that: 

You get up, take delicious breakfast and leave the house around 8:30am, to drive with the tuktuk to the women rescue home. There you can either show the girls how to use a computer, teach them English, just talk and play with them or help on their daycare and primary school to teach and play with the smaller children there and have fun. You will get a lunch there and then leave around 2:30 again.

Twice a month you will drive with them to the Maasai villages and schools to help the girls there, educate them, explain them their rights and rescue the ones in neee. When you reach the villages, you can help us give the sanitary pads or other donations to the girls and women and explain them how to use it and why it is important, and also what a period is like and how to prevent pregnancies. We also go to schools and teach them these topics and give them the sanitary pads. If you like you can prepare a short summary about HIV or other sexual diseases and explain them. Afterwards they can ask questions or just talk with us about what they want to know or how the HIV medication is showing in their bodies. Also we explain them about breastfeeding with HIV and how to avoid transmission if they are already HIV positive.

After that you drive home again and you can either go to the pool in hotels and chill in the sun, visit the Maasai market, go to a coffee in town or just hang out at home - just as you like. In the evening we provide dinner for you and around that all day you are free to do whatever you like.

Who is giving hands?

We are Sarah - a German physical therapist who decided to stay here in Tanzania & Emmanuel - a Tanzanian safari and tour guide - will do anything to give you the most beautiful time here in Africa.

What do we do?

We founded this social project to help the people in Tanzania, because we can’t save the world alone. That’s why we need Y O U !  We provide a housing and fresh cooked meals in our house for you during your stay and we give you the opportunity to work voluntarily in several different projects like children care, hospitals, schools, babyhomes, environmental projects or women empowerment projects to help the community and increase intercultural exchange. Emmanuel as a native will show you the town Arusha, which bus to take, how to dress properly, where to go and how to behave in this culture and we bring you in those projects the first day, such that you know what to do and where to go. 

Where are we?

We - and also you if you come - live in Arusha, Tanzania. Tanzania itself is located in Eastern Africa and is a very safe country. You can trust me as a European, I‘ve never been scared or felt offended at any time (which is also because Emmanuel explained me well on the first days). The people here are so open minded and warmly welcome everyone, no matter which religion or skin colour, they are just nice to each other. Arusha is THE tourism town, because every Safari starts from here, so we have supermarkets, coffees, restaurants and many hotels, just like in Europe. The gap between very poor and very rich people is quite big here, so you will find every kind of person on the road. It’s just colourful and nice here, but see for yourself!

Our vision is, to help the community of Africa. Not just help them temporarily but to help them help themselves better. This can only be done together, that’s why we need you. We also wish to show you the t r u e Africa with its true people and show you this wonderful but also very different culture. Come visit us and we show you the beauty of this wonderful place of earth.

On top of that we aim to teach English to poor children, such that they can have a future and good education means also a good job. 

Furthermore we aim to educate the women and also the men (starting in school) about hygienical issues, menstruation and sexual diseases like HIV or explain them about how not to get pregnant in a young age to ensure a better future for the girls. 

My personal goal as a therapist is of course also to help those in need such as people with diseases or special need children, because their life is hard itself but in a poor country without any chance of earning money it’s even harder. 

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for motivated people who want to get to know the real Africa and do their volunteering in the most beautiful country with people who really need our help. It’s important to be open minded and simply interested in this other culture.

Why choose us?

First, we bring travelling (such as safaris, trip to hot springs or maasai villages or other tours) and volunteering together, to guarantee you the most beautiful experience of your life! 

We really do this with love and all our hearts, you will live in our house with maximum 6 other people in a room with maximum 4 people each room and enough space - so it’s very familiar and comfortable and not crowded and unknown as many other hostels here. If you have anything on your mind or want to ask something we will be there for you. 

Also our location is very close to supermarkets and restaurants and a fresh fruit and vegetable market, so you can enjoy the tastiness of Africa! 

On top of that we offer you all our trips like safaris and other weekend trips for special prices, that’s actually very cool. 

And we will truly put you into projects that really need help and also give you an impact of this wonderful African culture. Emmanuel as a native will cook (very delicious) African food and explain you a lot about the culture. You could also take Swahili lessons or just ask if you need to know anything - fell free, hakuna matata!
